Run Commuting

Running to or from work is growing more and more popular. Here at the University we are continuing to build a network of run-commuters by providing facilities and access to help and advice that supports those that wish to run to work.

Do you already run to work or are you considering giving it a try? Find information below and guidance on how to join the growing community of run-commuters at the University for support and encouragement.
